Schedule 80 CPVC Pipe

What makes CPVC pipe different from standard PVC pipe? It all starts with the way it’s made. CPVC stands for chlorinated polyvinyl chloride, which means that the thermoplastic is actually chlorinated. This gives it some unique properties and features that are significantly more advanced than its standard PVC counterpart.

The most important feature is CPVC’s high temperature rating. While standard PVC is only capable of handling fluids with temperatures up to 140⁰ F, CPVC can handle temperature applications up to 200⁰F. This is a significant distinction, so CPVC is commonly used in high-temperature applications that include water distribution, all types of chemical and corrosive fluid handling, fire suppression systems, and more.

Aside from its high temperature tolerance, CPVC is similar to PVC in a number of ways, such as its corrosion resistance, eco-friendliness, durability, and affordability. It’s typically light gray in color, and it has the same sizing system as standard PVC pipes.
